Live Poll: The International Godmothers of Action

These female actors did a quite good job on the action genre. They are icons in their own way of being a action movie star. Their movies claim cult status. No matter if it's about war, women to man/women combat, science fiction or what ever - all of them are known for their work. Which of these well trained muscle packed ladies is your lead actioner? Give us the gym results here.

Halle Berry in John Wick 3, X-Men series, Catwoman, and many more. She also won an Oscar.

All hoped on the list. But please remember:
If there is a better female actioner, I'd make an exchange.
There might be fem fighters we forgot. ;)
Still 3 to go. :D

Since rules changed to the rules of the godfathers poll, Halle Berry fell of the list. Too less action roles. To avoid complications, I checked the new movie-links I inserted, if they're tagged "action". So same for Anne Hathaway. But thank you anyway. You had some pretty good suggestions. Most of them succeeded the enquiry. ;D

Re-checked it. Halle Berry is still on the list. Sorry, I'm a little tired. It was another candidate. ;)

Well, 9 out of 10 suggestions were added. Not bad. And true, Anne isn't an action star.

Also, could you tell me the minimum no. of action films required for an actress to be eligible for the list?

...'cause I notice you still have some spots left. :)

Feel free to suggest. Like in the godfathers poll it's exact 5 movies with action roles of the action icon you want to suggest. And to avoid complications, the movie should be tagged as "action". Last days I checked many action movies in which actresses of this idea were in. But they sometimes  had no action role. Sometimes they play doctors, wifes or nurses. That wouldn't count as an action role. It wouldn't make sense.

Does the film series count?

For example, Rachel Weisz starred in two 'The Mummy' movies. Will it count as one or two?

Ok, now we have 36 candidates on the list. Max = 35.
We can put more women on the list, but later we have to discuss, which have to
be put of that list or if we make another list, if there are still enough women to put
on the list. :D

I do have more suggestions, but I stopped, thinking you might wanna stop. If you want to create a part-2 of this poll, that's a good idea.

Edit: Or we could wait for more users to share their opinions.
Edit 2: I've got a few foreign action-actress in mind too.

"Ugly Gals" is no criterion in this idea. I don't count personality on cute/ugly. So you might skip the third list. ;) I even make no matter about good or bad "gals". So it is one in one only one list at the end. But a filtered. Let's see at a later point. ;)

Act_1 and Boss, there's been some misogyny sneaking onto this board and it is very disconcerting. Please, let's try to be respectful. Thank you. : )

Thank you all for making yourself soo much thoughts at this issue.
All in all mihailo.razvigor has understood what I intended with the godfather list.
That's exactly what this list is made for. Now we have thrown as many as
can fem fighters in the ring. But when you look at the top of the list,
you can see that there are 2 women that really deserve the honor. I've
put them there for an example.

And there are surely a few more on the list, who can claim to be an
female action icon. Such as the mentioned Sigourney Weaver, Jovovich,
Gina Carano, Carrie-Ann-Moss, etc. When we want equal rights, the
same filtering of candidates has to be made on the female list. Just look
at the godfather-list. Only 26 candidates. There is a reason why. :D

Breu, are you going to cut one option so this can go live?

Thanks, Breu. We noticed that you didn't provide text for the options like you did with the "Godfathers" poll so we wanted to give you a chance to do that if you wanted to. Perhaps just leave a little note when you consider this to be finished. 

: ) Thanks.

Of course, ruby. :D
I can do that, including the title change "The International ..." and of course the other issues. The mere problem might be that I have to put some options down, because it might be, that not all of them had 5 action movies. It will need some days - I got a lot of work at work and some work at home.

'Just a few small suggested edits:

I also suggest cutting  "Their movies claim cult status" because many of the movies are too widely popular to be considered "cult."
